Rogers And Williams Named To 2003 Walter Camp All-American First Team
Dec. 11, 2003
They were introduced during Thursday's (Dec. 11) Home Depot College Football Awards Show in Orlando, Fla., on ESPN. They will be honored at a banquet in New Haven, Conn., in February.
This is the third All-American first team selection for Rogers, who earlier was named to the Football Writers and Football Coaches squads. Williams earlier made the Football Writers first team. Both also made the 2003 All-Pac-10 first team.
Rogers has yet to allow a sack in 2003. The senior 3-year starting left tackle also earned All-Pac-10 first team laurels in 2002.
Williams is already tied for fourth on USC's career receptions list (168) and has 12 100-yard receiving games in his young career (7 times in 2003). A finalist for the 2003 Biletnikoff Award, he has 87 receptions for 1,226 yards (14.1 average) and 16 touchdowns this season. He has 30 touchdown catches in his 25-game career, eclipsing the USC career TD reception record 3 games before the end of his sophomore season (the Pac-10 career TD reception mark is 32 by Stanford's Ken Margerum in 1977-80). His 16 TD catches in 2003 is a USC season record. He has had multiple TD games 9 times, including 3 times getting a USC game record-tying 3 TDs. He currently is tied for sixth nationally in receptions (7.3) and is eighth in receiving yards (106.1).
